I was using JOCL for a project that is already running on JOGL and ran into a few issues. After much investigation, I found that a few of those issues were caused by bugs in the JOCL library.

These are simple bugs - 3 cases of arguments passed in the wrong order and 1 case of an unsupported define necessary for GL context sharing in Mac OS X. In the case of the missing int define, I just passed a hard-coded integer, since I don't know if I can put it in the file (as it appears to be generated during the build process).

My fixes are simple and crude, but I need them for my project to work correctly (and to work on Mac). Since more people might have been affected by these bugs, I assume that contributing these fixes back could help others. Is that the case? If so, how should I proceed?
